This new piece addresses the meaning of “Public Safety.” What’s a low-income neighborhood of color to do, targeted by the police, with lethal outcomes? What to do beyond despair, beyond protest? A neighborhood de-colonizes public safety. They put heads and hearts together and evolve practices that create public safety through joyous communal activity and collective problem solving.

Free movie screenings, free popcorn, free coffee & free conversation. Every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month, we screen movies about issues that are important to our Skid Row and downtown community at the #skidrowmuseum.
